National Space Society Board of Directors

Jesse S. Clark is a computer system administrator by profession, graduating from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in 1992 with an Aerospace Studies/Computer Science degree. Before graduation, he worked at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in the Mission Control Directorate under Gene Kranz. He also worked for Honeywell on commercial aircraft avionics for programs such as the Boeing 777 and the Bombardier Global Express.

A member of NSS since the early 1990s and also The Planetary Society, he became active in the San Diego chapter of The Mars Society in 2003, conducting and supporting numerous educational and public outreach events throughout the years. He then led the formation of the San Diego NSS chapter and has been elected its president every year since. Exciting the public about space by bringing space to the people was his key goal, which was written into the chapter by-laws.

Since starting the San Diego Space Society, he developed a speakers group to support numerous educational and public outreach opportunities. He also worked to establish a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) education space-focused activity lab and has fostered the development of educational relationships with a number of local schools. He also worked to develop the Chapter’'s Jr. Explorer’s program, which supports fun activities for children ages 5-12. In 2010 he helped the Chapter create “SpaceUp,” the first space exploration “unconference,” with attendees from SpaceX, Masten, and XCOR, organizations like the Google Lunar X Prize, AIAA, and CSTART, startups like Quicklaunch and Unreasonable Rocket, and local universities.
